Lodge & Spa at Brush Creek Ranch
How the West Is Won
What it is
An all-inclusive, all-luxury dude ranch on 30,000 acres of Wyoming’s Platte River Valley.
What it isn't
Urban. You’ll be miles from the nearest Starbucks, but with an executive chef who earned his chops at The Little Nell in Aspen, you won’t miss it.
What we think
The pioneers who settled in this valley in the 1800’s wouldn’t believe its latter-day amenities: guests can shoot clays, hunt everything from moose to mountain lion, fly-fish for rainbow trout (this is an Orvis Endorsed Lodge) and ride horses on 50 miles of trails…the list goes on. But even John Wayne may have opted for the indoorsy pursuits, such as an herb-infused massage in a tepee (what else?). The 41 homestead-inspired rooms have a cabin-like vibe—if the cabin were inhabited by Ralph Lauren. You can expect glimmering twig chandeliers and fireplaces along with buffalo plaid upholstery.
You're here because
You want to be where the buffalo roam, but also where you can have buffalo steak by an open-hearth fireplace in a 28-foot-hall great room, with an 800-bottle-deep wine cellar.
Sitting by a potbelly stove in your cabin, you feel exactly the way Butch Cassidy must have felt after a long day in the saddle—though the Wild Bunch probably didn’t wear ultra-plush bathrobes or tuck themselves between 400-thread-count sheets.
